Health Informatics and the Cardiovascular System-Health Assessment

August 18, 2010

In blending in healthcare informatics and the cardiovascular system, there are many opportunities to explore.  For instance, informatics can provide a detailed patient care record (EMR) that contains valuable health information that can be shared amongst healthcare providers. Next, with informatics, there are numerous cardiovascular diagnostic tests that are available to individuals seeking care.  Some of these tests include electrocardiogram (EKG), echocardiogram, and cardiovascular catherization technology.  These diagnostic tests provide information for preventive medicine and health care practices as well as current diagnostic interventions to prevent injury or further injury to the cardiac muscle.  Finally, the use of informatics to provide an updated electronic medical record and technology to perform comprehensive cardiovascular diagnostic evaluation allows healthcare to be concise and proficient, contributing to positive patient outcomes.  With this technology, an individual with chest pain entering an emergency department can gain access to care quickly to diagnose his condition that can provide interventions to save muscle as well as his life.  This can be accomplished by using efficient diagnostic technology and an up-to-date electronic medical record.  In this situation, time is muscle, and healthcare informatics can minimize this time to reach a diagnosis and quickly provide appropriate health care interventions to promote positive patient care outcomes.

Thank you.
